The building residents of the Cortleigh, at the Fort Lauderdale Beach, are hopping mad – well, all except for the drug rehab residents in unit 203.
According to some of the residents of the Cortleigh, their neighbors, the drug rehab, is making life miserable. They say the rehab unit is filled up with 18 and 19 year olds, all recovering drug addicts.
They say the rehab patients are made to ” line up like a cattle call” in the common areas at 7:30 in the morning and 10:00 at night. They say (though the operators are apparently disputing it) that the patients are being given medicine without the proper licensing.
The building is an older building in a very nice neighborhood north of Sunrise Blvd., a few blocks from the ocean, and some residents have already moved due to the rehab, and others are considering moving.
The City is aware of the issue, and Police are checking to see what, if any, laws are being broken.
